If you are stuck at the office today and can’t get up to Bancroft to check out some of the recce action at the Rally of the Tall Pines, we’ve got you covered.
I have never met Stephen M. Ihasz, but years ago I had several of the video tapes (yes, they were VHS) that he produced to showcase Canadian rallying, including this one. An overview of the 1989 Tall Pines, the production quality is much more dry than we would expect from a modern clip.
Still, Ihasz catches every car in the field on some of the classic roads used for the rally. Competitors include the likes of John Buffum, the Sprongl brothers and Tim O’Neil. There is also lots of great rear wheel drive action.
And just like that, you have chewed up 2 hours of your Friday!
